I m not convinced as to how much tar is actually in hookah smoke. Tar is generally produced when tobacco breaks down due to burning, like you said. However, if you are smoking properly the tobacco is not consumed in the process of smoking a bowl. Your bowl should look the same as when you packed it except dried out and toasted, the tobacco is not consumed in the reaction like in say, a cigarette.
